Stuff to Watch For: Firefly comics, RASL, FCS, Wild Things, and The Happening

Firefly/Serenity comics

Dark Horse has released information about their new Serenity mini-series co-written by Joss Whedon:

"Joss Whedon returns to the world of his blockbuster film Serenity with the three-issue comics series Better Days. Better Days revisits everyone's favorite space cowboys in this thrilling, action-packed adventure, with Mal and his crew on a heist that promises a big payoff -- what's surprising is that this heist just might make good on that promise. Whedon reunites with Brett Matthews and Will Conrad, his collaborators on the best-selling 2005 series Those Left Behind. Adam Hughes joins the team for covers."

The series takes place before the movie and will be on sale in comics stores on Mar 12.

Jeff Smith (Bone) has a 6-page preview of his new crime/adventure series RASL. I love Sims' take on the series: "Of course, given that I can’t read the title without thinking of the word 'wrestle,' there probably won’t be quite as many steel chairs and/or ladder matches as I’d like. Still pretty exciting, though."

Fantasy Crime Squad

Oh, wow. You gotta check out this image from Paul Jenkins and Humberto Ramos' Fantasy Crime Squad. Ramos describes it as "soon to be in pre-production," so I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for it, but when it does eventually come out, it looks gooooooood.

Where the Wild Things Are, etc.

Heidi's got stills from a bunch of upcoming WB movies, including the first I've seen from Where the Wild Things Are. There are also some from Speed Racer and The Dark Knight that have been making the Internet rounds.

M. Night Shyamalan's The Happening

I know it's in vogue not to like Shyamalan anymore, but I'm still a believer. I don't really like the title of The Happening, and the poster is pretentious, but I'll look forward to seeing the movie.

I'm with you on M. Knight. Even when he makes a true stinker (sorry, Lady in the Water hurt my brain), his direction is fantastic. His camera moves are exquisite, and no one creates a visual mood nearly as well as he does.

Now if only I can convince someone else that Unbreakable is his best film...

I loved Unbreakable every bit as much as Sixth Sense. They're right up there at the top together as far as I'm concerned.
